Asked whether there was one shot he wanted to have back, Woods replied: "All of them. It wasn't good enough.

Woods will feature as a playing captain of the United States against the International Team at the Presidents Cup in Melbourne later this week, live on Sky Sports Golf, and believes his game is in good shape.

"I wish I could have hit the ball a little bit closer [to the pins]," he added.

Dustin Johnson, who has not played competitively since August after struggling with a left knee injury, was the only member of the 12-man American team to not feature at Albany Golf Club due and Woods was largely pleased with how his fellow countrymen performed.

"I'm very happy with most of the team. The fact that 11 out of 12 guys played this week, some played well, some didn't, but at least they were able to knock off some rust, get some feel," he said.

"Rickie [Fowler] hasn't played since the Tour Championship, it was nice to see him get four rounds in, get the feeling back in his hands and his body and hitting shots again.

"It's so different playing at home for cash versus playing out here with a scorecard, so it was nice to see.

"And hopefully Dustin's feeling a little bit better, hopefully swelling stays down over the next 23 hours because it's a long flight down there. The guys will be ready."
